Sacramento to welcome large number of Syrians says resettlement contractor

Posted on November 2, 2015

There is nothing unexpected in this news article about the new CEO of ‘Opening Doors’ another resettlement agency contracted through Church World Service (one of nine major resettlement contractors working for the UN/US State Department), but I bring it to you because it makes some points we have been making lately. Yes!  They are contractors! […]

Sacramento Iraqis have mental problems; no psychiatric treatment readily available

Posted on June 4, 2013

This is not the first time that we have written about Iraqi refugee mental health problems (and I suspect it won’t be the last). So far, this fiscal year (2013) we have “welcomed” 11,066 Iraqis.  If the Sacramento percentages of suffering delicate Iraqis is representative then we have just admitted: 6,528 cases of insomnia 4,869 […]

Update on unhappy Iraqis in Sacramento

Posted on March 28, 2010

My previous post about the Overseas Processing Entities that are responsible for among other things, cultural orientation, reminded me that I needed to update readers on those Iraqis (with special immigrant visas) who wrote to us in January about their unhappy experiences in the US.   See their comments here to refresh your memory about their […]

Two more comments worth noting: Iraqis write from Sacramento looking for answers and for help

Posted on January 14, 2010

Update January 17th:  For unhappy Iraqi refugees, here are links for where you can send complaints and appeals for help. Two days ago I posted a ‘comment worth noting’ from Houston about how Iraqi refugees are having a tough time in that city with a resettlement agency that had been assigned to help them get […]

Gateway cities: the Sacramento example

Posted on June 3, 2008

Check out this article “Twenty-First Century Gateways: Immigrants in Suburban America” at Immigration Daily a publication of the ILW.com.  (You might even want to subcribe to the free publication.) We’ve mentioned Gateway cities in the past.  Traditionally immigrants arriving in the US went to certain cities. Two that come readily to mind are  New York and Los Angeles.  […]

California World Relief refugee contractor lets cat out of bag: next year 20,000-30,000 Syrians will arrive

Posted on September 20, 2016

And, no doubt they will be at least 95% Syrian Sunni Muslims. When the Obama Administration went to Congress last week with its official “determination” for FY2017 which begins in 11 days (on October 1) and said that they want 110,000 refugees from all over the world admitted in FY17, they very pointedly made no […]

NYT reports on serious concerns with refugee terrorists in US

Posted on February 21, 2016

I wonder how many of you saw this story?  It was in the New York Times on Friday (LOL! how many of us bother to read the NYT?), and is actually very useful and informative. Fourteen refugees, who came in through the UN/US State Dept. Refugee Admissions Program, have been arrested in the last two years […]

Two Iraqi (Palestinian!) refugees arrested on terror charges (California and Texas)

Posted on January 8, 2016

Here is the hot news this morning.  The LA Times has a more detailed account of the story that broke overnight, than some other news outlets (maybe CA is getting a little more sensitive to the terrorists living in their midst). The two Iraqis are actually Palestinians who had been living in Iraq.  By the […]

Plumas Lake, CA is on the US State Department list of cities that have already received Syrian refugees

Posted on September 29, 2015

Unless the US State Department has made an error in reporting its own data. This popped up in my alerts just now from the Appeal-Democrat. The editor must be referring to a blog post here at RRW and he tells us that we are wrong. Here is the editor: Syrian refugees in our neghborhood? Not […]

Will your town/city get Syrian refugees? Have you gotten them already?

Posted on September 22, 2015

Yesterday, someone sent me a link to a news story that reported that some small town in Michigan was going to ‘welcome’ 4,500 Syrians in the coming year.  Sounded preposterous to me, but it did spur me on to do something I’ve wanted to do for the last week and that is find out exactly […]
